This area finally got a little rain and dampened down the fire danger this week. I hope it keeps it up. The grasshoppers are awfully bad in some areas so between them and the dry conditions, it’s hard to keep smiling in this smiling country.
The Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame Induction that was to be in Cheyenne in September has been cancelled for this year. They will try to reschedule in 2021. I don’t have updates on regional inductions, so assume most of them are still being held.
Here’s a shot of exciting news! The PRCA Tour Finale has been moved to Rapid City, S.D. for September 23-26. It’s the final chance for the top 24 in the standings to make enough money to qualify for the WNFR, so it will be quite a show. It was originally slated to be held in Puyallup, Wash., but with the shutdowns and restrictions in that state, they were unable to have it. It should be quite a rodeo!
The Faster Feet, Faster Hands Goat Tying clinic with Timber Kelly will be two, one day clinics, on July 28 and 29, 9-7 both days. Both boys and girls at any level can attend. She’s taking 12 per day for $135 w/$60 deposit to hold your spot. You have to have that in by July 20. Contact Timber at 307-763-2926 or Sherri at 605-280-2442. It will be held at Sherri and Jeremy Cass Barn, Pierre, S.D.
Corson County Ranch Rodeo series at McLaughlin, S.D. will be held July 24 and August 15. The ranch rodeo is $500/team, taking 12 teams. Ranch broncs are $100 entry, $1000 added with 100% payout, taking 15 bronc riders. Call Sonny at 605-314-5845.
This one’s pretty close to my heart. The Bob Burke Days at the Crook County Fair will be held July 24-25, Sundance, Wyo. On the 24th it will start at noon and have barrels for all ages, then open and Sr. men’s breakaway. On the 25th the Youth Rodeo will start at 9 a.m., followed by a team roping. You can enter there.
The Weston County Mini Roughstock Rodeo entries are open until July 24, 5 p.m. for the July 27 event. Entry numbers are limited, so get entered right away to get in. Entry forms can be found on Facebook at Weston County Mini Roughstock Rodeo. By the way, they’ve added $250 to the 15-18 year old division. This ought to be a great event to attend so see you in Newcastle, Wyo., at 6 p.m. on the 27th.
Campbell County Fair Ranch Rodeo will be July 30 at the CamPlex Morningside Park arena, Gillette, Wyo. There’s $2500 added with 100% payback and they’re taking 20 teams at $400/team. Entries close on July 25. Entry number is 504-687-0200. Calcutta will be at 5 p.m., ranch rodeo at 6.
The much anticipated Price Ranch Team Roping will be held on July 26, enter at noon, rope at 1. There will be a BBQ afterwards around 5 p.m. It’s at the Denny and Claudia Price ranch west of Buffalo, S.D.
EMHSC Horse Show, Baker, Mont., will be held July 25-26. All ages are welcome. For information, call Britney at 406-852-0090.
Trail Days Ranch Rodeo will be August 2, 11 a.m., at Pine Bluffs, Wyo. It’s $300/team, and taking 20 teams. Entries need to be texted in on July 26, noon to 7 p.m. to 307-477-0091. Be sure and include team name, team member names and phone numbers. They will have a Six Minute Scramble, load one, tie one down, pen one and brand one.
The Weston County Fair Ranch Rodeo, Newcastle, Wyo., will be July 30 and is a qualifier for the State Fair Ranch Rodeo finals in Douglas, Wyo. They’re taking 10 teams, $175 entry, with a jackpot. Calcutta at 6:30 p.m., ranch rodeo to follow. Go to http://www.westoncountyfair.com to enter.
There will be a Youth Roughstock Rodeo at Sundance, Wyo., on July 30, 5:30 p.m. Entries are online only at tinyurl.com on the Facebook page Youth Roughstock Rodeo.
The Brindle Big Loop Ranch Roping will be at the Rafter MB Arena and Event Center, Wheatland, Wyo., on August 1, 10 a.m. You can rope 2 head, top 10 back for the short go. Free admission, bring the family! It’s $150 entry for each teams, 30 team limit. Entries are on site 8-9:30 a.m.
